(I just learned how to take a screen shot! Woo hoo I'm feeling smart.)
As you can see from this screenshot the winds are up to 24 mph. I temperature part is making me cranky. It's getting colder after 11 am. It looks like tomorrow will be good, though.
I went outside and let the chickens out. They are always so full of bluster when they first come out. After finding out it was cold they ran back into their coop. Silly birds. The daffodil has decided not to open yet. I wouldn't either with this rain. I'm grateful for the rain so I don't have to water the new trees, potatoes, onions, and garlic.
There are a couple of inside projects I'll be working on besides the usual housework. I think it'll be a day for making comfort food, too.
We ended up doing all of that. I completed some overdue housework, Rowan worked halfheartedly on her school work. The dogs were happy to stay in the warm house and even let the cat sleep with them.
I made an appointment for Lizzie to get her hair styled. She always looks so cute after she has it done. There is so much cute I can't even look directly at her. It's just too much cuteness. I'll post a picture when she is done on Friday.
Jace came home from work and made some delicious pork chops and mashed potatoes. I had a sweet tooth later in the evening. Thinking back on some blogs I read today, they were all about dollar store desserts, I was inspired to pull some ingredients I had around the house to make my own small sundae.
Starting at the bottom I filled with a chocolate pudding snack cup, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a dollop of homemade strawberry jam, and topped with crumbled walnuts.
It hit just the right spot and now I'm ready to tuck myself in for a long winters nap.
